Thank you for considering organising a British TREC competition. TREC GB exists to provide support for organisers in order that riders can enjoy British TREC competitions run nationwide.

Arena TREC focuses on the MA (Control of Paces) and PTV (Obstacle course) phases of TREC and events are usually run in an indoor or outdoor school.  The PTV is shortened to 10 obstacles and there are a variety of classes to suit all horses and riders. 

In arena TREC competitions, the MA (CoP) scores are  reduced by 50% to try and more accurately reflect the balance between the two phases of the competition. It was thought that a straight 50% reduction would be preferable to a more accurate reduction as it was easier for organisers to calculate and riders can instantly see what they would have scored if it had been a full TREC competition.

The Winter League will include results from all TREC GB Arena TREC competitions held in the winter 2016-17 season from the 1st of October 2016 to 31st March 2017 in Open, Intermediate and Novice Rider, and Novice Horse classes.  Points will be awarded for placings (1st = 10 points, 2nd = 9 points, etc) and the best 4 placings for each horse and rider combination will be used to calculate the League standings. Please see sample schedule for details. Riders who are not members of TREC GB can join on the day (before or after their class) in order for their performance at that event to count.
